Townhall Falsely Claims Liberals Out to Attack Ann Coulter with Bagels

54333-ann_coulter_bagels_detail_large.jpg
While reading at the conservative site Townhall I noticed a link on the site with the claim Liberal blogs place BOUNTY on Ann Coulter. Following the link I came across a post which did not back up the claim about liberal blogs in the title:

Saying that $1000 is the prize if someone will pelt her with bagels this next week and get it on tape – this moron’s stupidity – has hit some of the pop culture blogs and is being spread far and wide.

Following the link I find that this appears to be yet another example of the right misrepresenting liberals. The site promoting this the attack is Bragster, not a liberal blog. The dare, which at the time of my posting has only been viewed by 95 people despite the link from Townhall, reads:

So, once again Ann Coulter has opened her giant, hate spouting mouth on national television. You can find the info here:http://politicalticker.blog…

In short she has said that all Jewish people should be “perfected” to Christianity. Not ok.

We’ll give you $1000 if you send us a video of you pelting Ann Coulter with bagels. You’ve got 1 week. Get moving people. Obviously, be gentle and do not hurt her. This is simply a little bit of fun…not malicious.

Sign up here (http://www.bragster.com/signup) and click disagree in order to join the bet. To win the prize you need to be over 18 and have to post your video in the comment section below.

And we’re not paying you to do it, we’re paying for the video. It’s not our responsibility if you get arrested, sued, stalked by right-wing fanatics or if Coulter lights you on fire.

While I don’t approve of any such attacks, at least they do advise those who take the dare to “be gentle and do not hurt her.” Should anyone take them up on this, I hope Coulter also sees this as “a little bit of fun.” Otherwise the legal expenses might be significantly higher than the $1000 prize.

An actual response to Coulter’s comments came from the Anti-Defamation League and did not involve throwing anything at Coulter.

    Whether I see this as a violent attack or a bit of fun depends upon how hard the bagels are thrown and whether there is cream cheese on them.

    Jimmy,

    By that logic, would flavored cream cheese be an even more violent attack–especially if she is wearing white as in the picture above?

    She wants to get hit with Lender’s bagels since they’re the traditional jewish size and much smaller than those clown shoes sized bagels americans wolf down all the time.

    Nah, throw a steak at her. She needs meat, badly.

    A nice Apple Pie, you know, for motherhood, the pie, the flag… placed squarely in the face… hey, it’s slapstick!

    Steve,

    Really? I’ve been to several Jewish bagel shops and they’ve been clown size.

    Throwing bagels probably qualifies as assault. We should just have a bonfire of all her books and an effigy of her on top and burn it at one of her events. That would be an image she would never forget.

    LJ: problem with that is, burning her books would make it seem like people somehow want her silenced. She could then use that to make it seem like it’s about stifling free speech, rather than simply opposing her stupid, hateful speech. Book burning isn’t a liberal thing to do.

    Besides, to legally burn her books would require buying them anyway.

    Not to come off dissing, btw.
